As an emergency medicine physician, Dr. Rahman Mohammed sees many people come to the emergency room with what he calls “anxiety of health” — worries about ultimately mild symptoms that ER physicians are able to address, to the tune of a hefty bill. This trend prompted Dr. Mohammed to realize that there exists a significant need for healthcare consumers to seek prompt medical advice without needing to visit the emergency room.
And so, one year ago, Dr. Mohammed created VivoDoc, a start-up that he describes as follows: “Created for physicians by physicians, with the sole purpose to bring back the sacred patient-physician relationship, so we can make things more convenient for you—so you deal with one single vendor for all your practice needs.”
This website, https://vivodoc.com, is a centralized platform where the patient can choose their providers; likewise, doctors can choose their patients, their services, and their hours. Dr. Mohammed called this vision a “transparent marketplace.”
With VivoDoc launching on July 15 in Texas, where Dr. Mohammed practices, next steps for the company entail expanding to become a national platform. Join Dr. Mohammed as he discusses his startup, its biggest challenges, and its vision for the future of healthcare.
